U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer says he is introducing legislation to make it illegal to build homemade bombs.
The New York Democrat said Sunday that current federal rules could potentially allow someone to make homemade explosives without breaking the law. He says that the Boston Marathon bombing and the publication by terrorist groups of recipes for homemade bombs show the need to criminalize the activity.
Police in Boston have released a new photo showing the man believed to be a suspect in the marathon bombings.
In the new photo, he's wearing a gray hoodie sweatshirt pulled up on his head. The photo was taken at a 7-Eleven in Cambridge, just across the river from Boston.
AP sources identify the man as 19-year-old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev of Cambridge, Massachusetts. He is the bombing suspect who is still alive. The other bombing suspect was killed overnight in an exchange of gunfire with police.
